This is a nice quality cup and infuser -- it's sturdy and comfortable. The infuser is resistant to staining and the little lid that is used to keep the heat in when steeping can be turned upside-down to act as a holder for the wet infuser when you remove it from the tea.

However, there are some problems. My main complaint is the design of the infuser. The sides are a nice, fine mesh whereas the bottom is plastic with some perforations. These holes in the bottom allow small leaf bits to flow-out. I have a Teeli infuser that has the mesh in the bottom also and it keeps all of the leaves contained. Second, and far more minor, the cup is rather small. It makes a nicely sized cup of tea, but if you're used to drinking from larger cups and mugs, you will find yourself gulping this one down pretty quickly.

Overall, this is not a bad product and if it had the full mesh infuser, I would have given it 4 stars.

This set works great. I used to have to use cheese cloth bags for my tea, but now I can just drop my herbs in and steep and wah la tea! Easy to clean to. I do get some sediment, but I use a lot of loose herbs so that is to be expected.

I got this little guy as a small Xmas present, and have been pleased with it. Very useful. I agree with small bits of tea comments above through the holes in the bottom of the infuser, but it's such a small amount that it wouldn't cause anyone trouble. The general ergonics of the design are lacking. It's quite hard to hold by the handle, with no way to leverage the cup vertical (fingers slip down the handle). Only way I can figure out is to hold the cup itself, fingers through the handle but only near the very tip of the rim when hot. Needless to say, I enjoy using it, and the lip does have some significance to it, so it can be held in this manner quite easily.

Looking forward to many tea infusions at work now, and moving up to better loose teas in purchases. :)

It absolutely amazes me that some people spend over two dollars for a single cup of coffee, yet still buy those low cost tea bags from the grocery store, and then claim to like coffee better. Many people have not tasted a real good cup of tea. Good tea does not come in a 200 count per cardboard box - the tea should have higher quality and shouldn't be in a cheap cardboard box at all. It should be in a sealed tin or packed in an airtight bag in order to preserve the flavor, and the leaves should be specially selected. The cheapest teas are bought in bulk from the lowest quality teas parts of the tea leaf. Yes, cost does matter in tea, just like coffee.

Unless you're really lazy (which, I admit, I am), teas should also never, ever, be served from a bag. Teas should be in loose form, not confined in a bag. Why? Because tea leaves need to expand in the water to release their full flavor. You can buy loose tea leaves buy on amazon, high end grocery store, or in specially markets (e.g. Cost Plus), or tea shoppes.

Now, unless you want to brew a whole pot with tea leaves in the plot, there are not many ways to make tea right for just one person. This mug solve the single serving dilemma. It's big, sturdy, and made of glass. The most important thing though is that it comes with an infuser. It looks like a cylindrical filter that is placed into the mug. Just spoon a bit of the tea into the filter, dunk in the mug, and the tea will be brewed right then and there. The result is some of the best tea you'll have ever drank. The brewing is really easy, add tea to the filter, and add sub boiling hot water, wait, remove the infuser, and drink. If you need to add sugar or cream, well, that's your choice, but I believe the right tea needs none of that.

This is really a fantastic little product. I am using mine for the first time this morning to brew some Yerba mate 'gringo style' and it works great.

I would give it five stars but the other reviewer has a point, the holes on the bottom of the infuser do let out little pieces of the tea, however a bit of common sense can get around this problem.

After you load up your tea and put the lid on the infuser, turn it upside town (holes up), and shake vigorously. The small particles will sift to the bottom (the top) so when you turn it back over they're all at the top of the tea. Problem solved.

One other problem I just discovered is that the lid of the infuser doesn't seal so after you're done making your tea and you turn the infuser over to set it down (holes up) the liquid still in the tea slowly leaks out the bottom to make a small mess on your counter. Not cool!

I like it's size, weight, and the fact that it is clear glass so you can see the tea. I keep it warm at my desk with the aid of a coffee cup warmer and one cup will last for several hours. The strainer works flawlessly for me.

The glass mug is excellent, sturdy, thick enough not to transfer too much heat when it's full of hot tea, and you can see the color of the tea inside, easily.

The infusor is big enough to allow even the boldest of teas to unfurl completely. The white plastic of the mesh is surprisingly impervious to staining, and the plastic structure is strong and flexible. It's not the finest mesh I've come across so some dust will end up in your tea, but it's as good as most of the commercial filters.

The lid that helps keep steeping heat in the infusor when steeping doubles as a holder for the infusor when you take it out of the tea. It's very useful for the office and anywhere you can't get to a dish for holding the filter easily.

I like it a lot.
